You're assuming the person that would go into a crowded area and shoot innocent people are thinking rationally. I'd guess that someone who would commit such a heinous act wouldn't worry about repercussions. Although if more people had guns the crime could be stopped quicker, so really both sides could be right. I just wish we knew the answer, I'm tired of seeing school shootings on the news

Yes, because despite what the media tells you, people with mental illnesses, sociopaths in particular, as a common trend are more intelligent than the average person.

They are probably able to logically deduce their fate better than you could in the same situation. What you mean to say is that I'm assuming a person that would go in to a crowded area and shoot innocent people is worried about his own life.

No, because the human mind prioritizes things in ridiculous order. What I believe is that a person that would go in to a crowded area and shoot innocent people wants to go in to a crowded area and shoot innocent people, not shoot one person and continue to get gunned down by a crowd of people around him. It won't be big enough for him, and the only one who he will be able to tell is scared is himself.

In other words, vast armament would psychologically deter the criminal from his shooting, because yes, believe it or not, Criminals have brains and we know how they work, at least in terms of basic Behaviorism.

You can't compare nuclear weapons to guns, that is completely out of context, the problem is guns make it very easy and efficient to kill someone and very impersonally.


When comparing you need to compare on a like for like basis, I could argue that having brick houses and not having wooden houses prevents fires therefore having no guns will be more beneficial

It's easy to compare those two things.
A gun is a weapon, and nuclear weapons are, without any shit, also weapons. I think that nuclear weapons makes it quite easy and efficient to kill someone as well, on a higher scale, which is probably also very impersonally.

But guns make it more personal though, since most of the time you see a face, maybe you know a name, or something like that, killing isn't easy. Now what is really easy is the old "Neck-shooting" facilities, they were impersonal.

No it isnt. The actors are not equivalent.

State actors =/= individual actors. IR 101.

Because mutually assured destruction always calms things right down. Mexican stand-off at a national level. Couldn't possibly go wrong...

How many times has the word nearly ended with highly trained professionals calling the shots? Read up on the Cuban Missile Crisis, a brief history of the Cold War and the Samson Option. Seriously, WMDs are a seriously bad idea.

If it was such a good plan why does everyone freak out whenever N.Korea makes a big display of testing its own bombs?

#236 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/29/2013) [-]
Yes, I'm aware the Cuban Missile Crisis was a close call, but that had more to do with the fact that those missiles were going to be placed VERY close to America, and in the hands of a fascist leader no less.

It's what works, since the WMDs are in existence, and the reason we still use a plan of Mutually Assured Destruction is because they aren't going to just stop existing. Guns are the same way; There are too many, and getting them is too easy, to hope you could control them all. The worst of it is, even if you tried to get rid of them all, if there's even one left unchecked it could have CATASTROPHIC results.


The reason why is because people like being scared. It gives them something to rally together about, and even moreso, because of a glorification of war that continues even in to the modern day. While a portion of people may be largely anti-war, I think the fact of the matter is there's a latent desire in America, and perhaps other places, to see a third world war, not out of desire for war itself, but more out of anticipation. It's sort of like if a reputable source told you a Meteorite was coming to blow up the earth tomorrow, and meteorites start whizzing passed the earth, but none of them quite manage to hit.

You know they exist, you know this is a tangible, plausible cause for your destruction, and even though it didn't happen when they said it would, you constantly realize that it's going to eventually, because the chances of it not seem to be non-existent.


I don't think, even with the ridiculous regime that North Korea must follow, that there was ever truly a reason to fear Nuclear Crisis. I think even Kim Jung Un realizes that a Nuclear Blast will kill him just as well as it will anyone else, whether he WANTS to believe it or not.

He is fighting Deadpool in a one on one duel to the death in the picture. He'd prepared the house to be filled with guns already. In fact, in that same comic, he shoots deadpool through the head at a cow butchering factory.

Best endurance for a predator. Camels and Gazels can go much further, much faster.
